Two Key Bills Pass the PA House of Representatives 
HB 566
On Tuesday, June 20, the PA House of Representatives voted to pass Prompt Pay Legislation ( HB 566) by an overwhelming, bipartisan majority of 168-26.   The bill  permits contractors to suspend their work if they are not paid per contract terms. This represents a huge win for contractors across the state of Pennsylvania who are not being compensated for their work and materials in a timely manner.

HB 442
On the same day, the House voted to pass HB 442 to establish a state licensing program for plumbers within the Department of Labor and Industry.
